I have a very nice mate who lent me the Canon 100mm macro for long term whilst he sold his Camera.
I used this Lens not as often as I should as I payed nothing for such a long rental, he has just brought himself his new camera and wants this lens back (no surprise). I was very pleased with mostly all pictures produced with this lens and got along with it very well.
My question is I'm now looking to buy a macro lens, I'm on a tight budget and I was wondering if the Sigma 105mm macro F2.8 was worth a look as it is around £150 cheaper than the canon. I understand the Canon is a very good lens and you get what you pay for but is the sigma noticbly lower quality or is it worth buying.
(I'm looking for a macro lens which gives 1:1 Magnification if there is any other lens suggestions please post)
